Oh my fucking God ! I cannot believe that I have to file for unemployment. There was a problem at work that shut down the office for God knows how long and I cannot be without a pay check for even a week. So now I am jumping through the hoops required to make sure I can get my unemployment. It is going to be about half of what I am used to making but half is better than nothing at all. My boss said that as soon as the problems are worked out we will be back to work, but that it could take as many as three months to fix.
Unfortunately he didn’t elaborate on what exactly the problem is and I am a little annoyed by that. I hope it isn’t something illegal because I would hate to have to go to court. I have never noticed anything like that before so I am going to assume it isn’t. By boss said to keep in touch with him weekly, just in case. I hope whatever this is blows over very quickly, but I somehow don’t think that is going to happen. I will just have to cross my fingers and hope for the best.
I fucking love spring. It is hands down my favorite time of year, when everything is fresh and new. The trees and flowers bloom in a riot of colors and the smell of fresh cut grass is abundant. I am going to have a little get together now that the weather is so fine. I have a bar-b-q grill on my back patio that is about to get a nice work out. I know that it will be a fun time, because all of my friends are just like me. We love the outdoors and BBQing is on of our favorite things to do.
I think I will serve the typical bar-b-q foods for this time around as we haven’t had one in so long. I am very excited by this and can’t wait till the weekend gets here. I think I may set up some games to play just for some fun. I have a badminton set and a Crockett set as well for us to play. I don’t think I will serve a lot of alcohol this time though. Maybe a little beer but I don’t want a rowdy party this time, I just want a quiet get together with my closest friends.
Okay, so I had a date last night and wouldn’t you fucking know it, the guy was a creep. It was a blind date, which I normally do not do. My friend Stacy told me this guy that was at her last party liked me and wanted to go out with me. Like a jackass I said okay and now I wish to hell I hadn’t. I ended up leaving him at the restaurant and taking a cab home. He was the most male chauvinistic pig I have ever met. He is looking for a wife, but wants his “little lady” to stay at home and raise the kids like a good little wifey.
Are you fucking kidding me ! That wasn’t the worse part though, by the time dinner was over I was already pissed off, but then he wanted to go dutch and my pay half the tab. What a loser. I got up and left the restaurant right then and told him to never call me again. Then I called Stacey and bitched her out for being so unbelievably stupid. She was like, “Oh well I always thought he was joking around when he said blah blah blah” Well guess what? He was not joking at all.
The internet is so much fun. I can get freebies for all kinds of stuff on the net, like jewelry, clothing, perfume, electronics (small ones). I just fucking love it. There is no end to what you can find for free on the internet. The coupons alone will save you tons of money if you have a printer and do it right. I have a friend who saves so much money with coupons that sometimes, she goes into the store picks out what she has the coupons for and when they ring her up, they owe her money ! How fucking great is that shit?
I really need to spend some time with her so she can show me what exactly she does. I know that I would love to save money like that. She does buy a lot of bulk though and I need a bit more storage space first. I have been thinking of buying a climate controlled shed for my backyard. Then I can store all kinds of stuff and never have to worry about it going bad. We shall see what I decide to do. I might just get rid of the crap in the extra bedroom and use it. I will figure it out.
I am fucking starving and I want to go out to eat. I think I am going to call my girl Cindy and see if she wants to go do lunch at Apple Bee’s. I really love their food. their lunch specials are the bomb. Cindy and I get together at least once a month to have lunch together and bullshit. Ever since she stopped working to become a stay at home mom, we have much more time together. Since I make my own hours, I am not on a time constraint and her kids are in school, so it works for us.
Sometimes we like to do a little shopping at the mall and just hit the food court or one of the restaurants that are there. I am too hungry for shopping today though and I have a craving for Apple Bee’s catfish sandwich. It is really amazing. I will probably have soup or a salad with it, but I am not sure. I guess I will figure that out when I get there. I have a feeling I will be working tonight instead of today though, because I will probably stuff myself and then come home and nap. That is what usually happens.
